Greece

Greece is a country that I found even more charming when I viewed my photos than when I saw the places in person. Perhaps when I was there it was still so hot that I felt very uncomfortable walking around carrying two cameras. Another reason is that whenever I'm travelling with a guided tour, I have to rush myself to catch up with the group. But after the trip, when I can finally sit down to look at the photos, I just love the sunshine when I don't feel the 37 to 40 Celsius temperature.... and I can zoom in the amazing ruins and artistic statues to look at the remarkable details on the screen, while at the museum I could not take such a close look at the exhibits. Their architecture and sculpture from thousands of years ago were already really stunning. That reflected how talented and artistic the Greeks were.

Actually I shouldn't be surprised at their creativity, as this is the land where the Olympic Games originated, in 776 BC.
